Re: “Out, Out, Stubeeee, Q1

Just to give a dissenting opinion about Songs to Forget Me By from Out, Out. . . I've got to say that I think that it's one of the best new albums I've heard in a long time. Having kids myself, and the emotional tones of this album, I thought it was a beautiful touch. I find the music very inspiring. I'm not in the band, if you're wondering. I am just really impressed with this album. I'm not trying to bag on the reviewer, but where she found the kids hokey, having children of my own and understand what they mean to me, I found it very charming for this artist to include what seems to amount to his whole life in his art. This album is all about getting through life, struggling through the bad, and doing everything you can to keep your head above water. I thought it was beautiful.

Re: “Best Albums of 2009

To be fair, the only person who is mad is the person who refused to take a silly quiz for a local paper so constituents could get to know you better. WHOOPS. Messed up on that one. Also could you at least bother getting a website that isn't hosted on Weebly. com? A little professionalism would go a LONG way.

Kevin, thanks for the corrections! Man, I guess you should have taken the quiz! You did so well.

Re: “Best Albums of 2009

Colin, I know you're mad I didn't take your quiz, but you could at least spell my name right and get permission to use my photo? One never knows if he can trust a reporter asking for an interview, and I apparantly chose wisely. Kevin Paulson ps. I would have gotten the color of the s line, sputnik, and the 2. 50 fare, but had no clue about the bucket factory or the Smoot trading post. 3/5 aint bad.

See a Hyper Crush show, the power glove has been converted to include lasers et al. It's bomb.

I feel like with all the technology around today there should be a working Power Glove available for the masses. Power Glove smart phones, anybody? The power glove . . . has limitless potential . . . In the right hands . . . It might just save us all.

Re: “Polvo & The Shaky Hands

Swallow is only drawing attention to these "false" stories propogated by the media by behaving as though reporters and news outlets are picking on him. Poor guy! The better strategy (politically and maturity-wise) is to embrace the media for attempting to educate the public on the scandals despite the erronous information provided, and offer the "correct" information from his side. Right now he's portraying himself as a whiny bitch. Regardless, I cannot wait for the day when his shady practices catch up to him.

Re: “The Lawrence Arms: Buttsweat & Tears

I agree. Who cares about drinking metephors? They don't make or ruin a song. Also Brendan sings redness in the west. There are a lot of songs that he sings cleaner on. Listen to his solo cd. I don't know why I just spent time reading this crap.

Re: “Top 10 Albums & Concerts of 2010

whoa. this is the first nod to superchunk in a 2010 top 10 list i've seen. so i'm ecstatic, but then i read the review... really? best since foolish? indoor living has some hits. come pick me up will make you fall in love. here's where the strings come in is that cohesive, consistently great album. and here's to shutting up is a masterpiece. but alas, i'm a fanatic too. ... ps. if you like realism, you'll love 69 love songs.

Re: “Top 10 Albums & Concerts of 2010

Nice list Dan - I like all of the albums on your list that I've heard so I guess I need to check out the rest...a bit surprised that the National's "High Violet" is not included but maybe I'm mistaken in thinking it was a stunning and beautiful album by one of the best bands around right now.

Posted by Harlan on 12/24/2010 at 12:15 PM

Re: “Top 10 Albums & Concerts of 2010

Great choices, Dan! I would just add Aloe Blacc's "Good Things" to the list of top albums.

Re: “The New Evils & Nate Padley

Ooops... I mean Nate's new SINGLE, not album.

Re: “The New Evils & Nate Padley

I'm looking forward to hearing Nate's new album. I bought Monster of Vision after meeting Padley at Settebello a while back, where he was our server. Very interesting guy and a monster record. Hard to believe he's not a household word!

Re: “The New Evils & Nate Padley

Ive heard this album a gizillion times and I still love it like the first time I heard it...

Re: “The Lawrence Arms: Buttsweat & Tears

*Cormac McCarthy* My band with the spelling error.

Re: “The Lawrence Arms: Buttsweat & Tears

Yeah, this was a great album! It began where "Oh Calcutta! left off. You do realize that the song "The Redness in the West" is taken straight from the novel by Cormad McCarthy right? It's also called "Blood Meridian." The Lawrence Arms still have one of the best lyrical content of any modern band out there. If you can't see past the drinking methaphors, then go listen to some shitty modern rock bands.

Re: “Best Albums of 2009

Definitely some good picks there but Ryan should be disqualified (and probably smacked around) for labeling Husker Du emo. Homeboy needs to go back to school, they were already gone and on to other things (79-88) by the time music writers started using that silly term.
Guy Picciotto (Rites of Spring/ One Last Wish/ Fugazi) summed it up best, "I've never recognized "emo" as a genre of music. I always thought it was the most retarded term ever. I know there is this generic commonplace that every band that gets labeled with that term hates it." (2003 interview

Maybe "010 is the year it finally gets retired.
